WINNER: Win a Taylor Swift Laser Engraved Sony Cyber-shot TX7 Bundle!

In Consumer Electronics, Gadgets, General, Giveaway, Hardware by Michael Sheehan2 Comments

My 3 elementary school girls LOVE Taylor Swift. When I told them that I had a Cyber-shot TX7 camera that is laser engraved with Taylor Swift’s signature and that I was going to give it away, BOY did I get a lot of grief. So, I told them that I would embark on a campaign to get Taylor to come over to our backyard for a private concert instead. (I wonder how long that will hold them????)

From what I can understand, Taylor Swift is HOT among pre-tweens, tweens and teens. And I know Sony products a bit, having participated in the Sony DigiDads program a few months ago. So, this is a match made in heaven! Cool tech coupled with a cool singer!

And The Winner Is…

Congratulations to @graywolfpack who, via random selection using, won the Sony Cyber-shot TX7 with the laser engraved signature from Taylor Swift!

And here is Jeff Legg (aka @graywolfpack) with one of the first pictures from his new Sony Cyber-shot TX7!

I love the fact that is shown on the computer.

About the Sony Camera

Sony Electronics has provided me this brand new Sony Cyber-shot TX7 to give away. It’s a pretty neat camera actually. I played with a TX1 (which is sort of the little sister to the Tx7 in many ways) and I quite liked it. The TX7 has grown up a lot.

It has:

  • 10.2 MP Back-Illuminated “Exmor R” CMOS Image Sensor
  • Carl Zeiss Vario-Tessar Lens with 25mm equivalent wide 4x Optical Zoom
  • 3.5  Xtra Fine LCD touch screen display with TruBlack technology
  • Easy Touch Screen interaction
  • Anti-Motion Blur Mode
  • Handheld Twilight
  • Intelligent Sweep Panorama Mode
  • Backlight  Correction HDR
  • High Speed Shooting
  • 1080i AVCHD Movie Mode
  • HDMI Output
  • DVDirect DVD recorder compatible
  • 720p HD MP4 Movie Mode
  • Compatible with Mac/PC systems
  • And much more! READ HERE for details on the items above and others.

If the TX7 is anything like the TX1, it is a pretty stellar pocket camera, and with Taylor’s signature engraved in, this is a LIMITED EDITION! And, it is currently SOLD OUT and retails for about $500.

Even if you aren’t a Taylor Swift fan, you probably have already seen these ads:

Don’t you want a nice point-and-shoot like the one in this commercial that is not only a 10.2 MP camera but also films High Definition video? It’s pretty essential for anyone on the go. And getting one that is a Limited Edition is pretty nice as well.

Sony has given me one of these to give away so here are the details on how to win it. I have a feeling that it the chances of winning this camera will be pretty good.
